Words create. Words have power, words give things life, good or bad. When we complain we give our problems life, we give them power over us, over our day, our mood, our habits, our minds and our bodies. We allow them to grow. They grow inside of us and the negativity spreads to others around us.

When we are grateful, we are more appreciative of things big and small.  We attract positive people and positive things into our lives. We spread joy, love and happiness into those around us. It’s very important to be grateful, and to speak it out loud. Tell others when you are grateful for them or something that they did. Lift them up! Also pat yourself on the back and be grateful for all of your own accomplishments. Find things to celebrate rather than to complain about.

We have a game in our youth group that we play called 429. It comes from Bible verse Ephesians 4:29 which says, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Each time someone says something negative about anyone else they have to say 3 nice things about them to erase the negative thing they said. It makes them think twice about any “smack talk.”

In our gym we have the same rule, if you complain or say negative things about yourself, not only do you have to say 3 nice things, but you also have to do 10 push ups. That will make you become very careful about what you say! It’s a very good lesson also because when you have been particularly negative you will be sore and reminded for days.

The first step to any change is awareness. So many people don’t even realize that they are complainers. Sometimes we complain for attention or justification to whatever story we feel we want support on. How about we support each other in gratefulness and not complaining or negativity?

Instill a 429 rule in your house hold. Take notice of what you are giving life to. Hold yourself accountable, tell a friend or family member that you are trying to be a more positive person and for them to call you out when you slip. 10 push ups is a great way to remember, sore muscles remind you every day! Not to mention that you get a better body as you get a better mind! It’s a win-win! #Positivity #Gratefulness #BetterMeTribe

Hello beautiful souls. I'm Angielee, creator of BetterMeTribe. I'm a heart-first adventuring healer of souls. My calling is to heal the soul of the world by healing and filling one heart's cup at a time. I will teach you how to heal, fill, and overflow your own love's cup into the world, starting with the love cup inside of you. Healing and filling every area of your life so that you can overflow love into, onto, and all over others. A better world begins inside of each of us. And that is where BetterMeTribe Begins. I have had the privilege of unlocking and unblocking hearts, healing, and filling souls with the overflow method on stages big and small, in over 13 different countries on three different continents and 58 worldwide humanitarian aid mission trips. I have written eight books, three children's books that are launching soon, and this inspirational blog with over 900 heart healing posts with 50k Tribe members. I have been coaching teens and adults, one-on-one, families, groups, hosting, and speaking at events for over 20 years. But my life wasn't always like this. Through terrible traumas and a childhood that would make Stephen King have nightmares, I had to go through massive amounts of healing, forgiveness, and transformation myself. Overcoming those wounds has helped me to be able to be the best resource possible for helping others heal and use my own experiences and the experiences of many others to help as many as possible. There isn't much that someone can share with me that I have not been through, or helped someone else through. Being a natural problem solver and a deep empath, I find and pull out your strengths to become your best self. I teach you how to flow and grow through things so that you can become the beautiful being of overflow that you too were meant to be. Rising from the ashes and turning your life of pain into a life of beauty. I show people how to be love in all situations, to themselves, to others, and ultimately to the world, how to love the unlovely, even, and especially when that unlovely is us. I teach fun tools and tricks to help fill life's cup so that you are able to help others in a much bigger way than you ever thought imaginable. We can't help the sick, broken, or poor by being one of them. It is time to stop trying to serve from an empty cup running on empty fumes and overflow your own magical goodness into the world in a way that only you can. The world needs you. You need you. I need you. You are worthy of so much more than you even know, and I am here to help bring out that best self in you: transforming your life, healing one hole in your heart's cup at a time. Whatever your goal or obstacle is, I will help you flow like water through it, over it, or around it to help your soul become the majestic ocean, it is meant to be. Open your heart and allow me to pour into you, to teach you methods to keep your cup full so that you can start pouring better things into others. This is what Overflowing is all about. Allow me to overflow my love into you. Start with the search bar, search for the thing you need the most, and read those posts. Take the actions inside of them and apply them to your life. If you would like someone on one time with me, to talk deep heart to heart stuff, shoot me an email at angie@bettermetribe.com, and let's have a talk. I'm here for you. Your heart matters to me and I am here to heal it.
